Nuremberg Laws

Passed on September 15th, 1935 by the Reichstag, the Nuremberg Laws were laws that the Jews had to follow during the Halocaust . This was the First major step to removing the Jewish Community. They where Antisemitic/Anti-Jewish. The Nuremberg Race Laws consisted of two pieces of legislation: the Reich Citizenship Law and the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor. 

      The following Reich Citizenship Law stripped all Jews of the political rights deriving from German Reich citizenship and relegated them to the status of second-class citizens. In the following months, the regime used this legal demotion to push the Jews out of a number of professions, occupations, and programs of study for which Reich citizenship was required. The germon blood and german honer aimed to isolate the Jews racially and socially by prohibiting them, under pain of severe punishment, from marrying or having sexual relations with non-Jews. Jews were also prohibited from employing housemaids younger than 45. They were also barred from flying the new, official swastika flag.

     Schooling for Jews was very hard. A new law created by Adolf Hitler limited the number of Jewish students in any one public school to no more than 5 percent of the total student population. Educators in public schools taught love for hitler.They also changed the core curriculum in public schools to the importance of history and racial science. Since Jewish schools were closed down because of the Nureberg laws most mothers had to teach their kids, or some didn’t get taught at all.

    Jew’s could not own pets or bicycles. They also had a strict curfew to obey the green police. They could not attend school of any kind, and had to give up extra clothing. In addition to the above laws, in 1939, Jews were ordered to turn in their radio sets.They were ordered to so the jews could not know what was going on. Also some jews had to get rid of their radios because they didn’t want the green police tracking them down and catching them.
